How does Dan make money online?
Along with his business partner Eric Lambert, Dan makes money online in two primary ways:
- They buy products in bulk, get those products shipped to Amazon’s FBA warehouses, then resell them on Amazon.com. (This type of business is sometimes referred to as Amazon Wholesale.)
- They also sell an online course – The Wholesale Formula – that teaches other people how to sell on Amazon.

How much money does Dan make?
A YouTube channel called Wholesale Ted spotlighted Dan’s reselling business in November 2018…
At the 1:50 mark of that video you’ll see screenshots showing that Dan’s business had sold over $16 million on Amazon in four years, and more than $5 million in 2017 alone.
That works out to more than $400,000 per month in revenue in 2017.
According to the show notes for an October 2019 interview with Dan, the average margin for the Amazon business is 20-25%, which would put the monthly profit at $80k – $100k.
It’s unclear how Dan and Eric split those profits between them or how much they reinvest back into the business.
Their online course also likely provides them with a sizable income. As of this writing, the course homepage claims to have helped 3,856 students, and I believe the entry fee is at least $2000.
That works out to about $7.7 million in revenue.
